The Show was dreadful, the performers sounded nothing like the original singers, some of the singing was not even as good as some I have heard at karaoke. I can say that we were not alone when we walked out at the interval. There were a lot of unhappy theatregoers leaving at the same time and all complaining about the... More

The seats were great in the middle stalls and just eye level with the stage. I thought these seats were better... More

Attended a conference here as an exhibitor and from the minute we arrived the staff were so very friendly and helpful too - nothing was too much trouble. The venue itself has a very nice décor and is well maintained. There is a variety of conference and meeting rooms and is one of the best purpose built seaside conference centres... More

Went to see Tell me on a Sunday here and it was well produced roomy auditorium. Don't buy seats in Row B at side as the view isn't just restricted its non existent ! Staff were very helpful and let us move for second act but wouldn't buy so close to stage again as its a large stage very high.
